Poetry – We’ve Finally Made It!!

We’ve Finally Made It!!

We’ve made it!

The concrete and plastic

Have created a paradise!

We have everything we want!

We’ve got it made!

Drowning in goods;

More than we can ever need

At a price we can afford!

We’ve made the grade!

Stacking shelves

Delivering goods and serving coffee!

On a wage we can barely survive.

I hope we’ll all be happy there in our sterile loneliness.

I think we are in great danger of forgetting all the things that really count – the love of friendship, love, nature and the beauty of the natural world.

I'd like to hear from you...
